There's other music coming and I caught this plan for the record, how to deliver it and keep people moving.”

So we wrote it and then we send it to Koffee, because we both adore Koffee. And Koffee heard it and jumped on it. And I remember showing Jessie and just screaming when we heard the verse because we just adore Koffee and it was just an honor to work with these people. And it was just so much fun. I've never had that much fun writing a song before.”
